this might sounds silly, but can any body think of how we can use quartz in games development, (auto saving for example ), here is a link for qurtz, any idea guys.http://www.quartzscheduler.org/index.jsp
Personally, I wouldn't: for games, it sucks. It's a typical business-app library - slow and poorly architected, heavily multi-threaded. I've only looked at using it on the server side, where the design is depressingly inefficient, but even for client apps IIRC it's worse than java 1.3's TimerTask etc performance-wise, because Quartz allocates a new Thread for every single task. This is especially problematic if you are trying to keep your client single-threaded / RT. The API, IIRC, is a vast improvement over TimerTask etc, but given how simple a job it does, I doubt this would be worth the downsides.
On the topic of auto-saving....Hibernate's pretty good
(although I've not looked at H4 performance in detail with games in mind, so maybe again not a good tool for games...
